WSDOT reports that the North Cascades Highway will open on Weds, providing access to the North Cascades National Park:

The North Cascades Highway will reopen on Wednesday at noon. Until then the two gates, 14 miles west of Mazama and 7 miles east of Diablo Dam will remain closed while crews complete final avalanche clean up.

The roadway closed for the season last December 1. Work to reopen the highway began April 11. May 25 marks the second latest opening in the highway's 39 year history.
